Crash into You (Pushing the Limits #3)
by Katie McGarry (Goodreads Author)From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a good girl with a reckless streak, a street-smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the fast lane
The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind.
Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.
But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.

Oh Isaiah! Sweet, Sweet broken Isaiah!
Finally we get to see what happened to Isaiah and see his heart shine.
For Isaiah he knows nothing but shit and abandonment with the exclusion of Noah, Echo and Abby. He has to fight for everything and the last thing he wants is to be in anyone's debt.
For Rachel she is the typical spoiled rich girl. Well, she is on the surface but underneath lies the truth of who she really is. With her fragile family and protective brothers she is forced to be someone she isn't.
Finally given the chance to be free she meets Isaiah and their worlds change.
Now Isaiah is in debt not only to Rachel but because of her now Eric as well. Which is his worst nightmare.
With the help and support of his friends and social worker, Isaiah fights for his worth and realizes he deserves happiness which for him is Rachel.
Katie McGarry is such a beautiful writer with her ability to capture the angst of YA while getting to deep emotional angst of loss, family pressures, the social system and so much more.
I loved this story and my only complaint would be that the end of the story line with Eric felt a bit anti-climatic for all the angst getting there. Otherwise, I LOVED Isaiah and his sweet sweet heart and loving ways.
4.5 Isaiah Loving Thumbs Up!
